"1902 Rapid Truck"
http://0.tqn.com/d/trucks/1/0/f/L/1/1902GMC.jpg
------------
Hmm?? I'll bet 'Rapid' trucks were
anything but 'rapid'!!!:D By the way,
wasn't Rapid one of several early
truck manufacturers that were
bought up by General Motors in
the early 1900's and then conjoined
to form the basis of the GMC Truck
division??

It is very simular to a chain of resturants in Texas called The Pig Stand. I think they were started in Fort Worth. Their specialty was a BBQ pork sandwich on a burger bun. There is still one in San Antonio.
edit. Wikipedia say the Pig Stand was the first drive in resturant started in 1921 in Dallas

Thanks, Andy. :) The trees look like Texas, and that looks like a river back there, so maybe San Antonio. If this IS one of the Pig Stands, it would be one of the very earliest drive-in restaurants. :eek: As far as fast-food, White Castle was also 1921, though I do believe much of their urban business was foot traffic.

Anybody else have a take on this oldie?

I looked at a 58 with a 348 a couple of years ago. I have never saw a FI 58. There is a not bad looking 58 two door HT with a 283 and a Glide that I'm looking at now.Living in Simi Valley in the early 60's I remember a neighbor kid bought a 59 Chevy post model FI car. Wicked piece.

Okay, here's another historically 'incorrect'(?) one - Unless I missed something, Cheboygan is on the east side of lower Michigan, about 15 or so miles south of the Big Mac. US23 runs thru town - of that I'm certain cuz I used to run that route every weekend when stationed up at K.I.Sawyer AFB from home near Alpena, many years ago.

US27 runs (or did run) roughly thru central lower Michigan, about where I-75 now goes. Looks like whoever captioned this card or picture way back when, erred when naming the highway.

Old 27 turns East by Mullet Lake (really!) and heads into Cheboygan.

I recently acquired several thousand Steam Train related pics.

In amongst them was about 100 panoramic views that are hugely wide.

A couple of the shots feature early Los Angeles Scenery such as this one.

Los Angeles Harbor August 1919,
Note the return and storage of WW1 Naval ships sometimes 3 or 4 deep against the opposing harbor wall.
I presume that the numerous passenger train cars are their to take the last of the boys home as great war machine

This is Shelby's crew that got the DragonSnake to hook up in a straight line, probably about 63'. When these guys talk of working for Carrol they speak of the operation "before we moved to the airport". These are the original wrenches and drivers.

The draft got in the way a few careers back then.

DeuceDon, I've been searching for some it me now and haven't found a pic
(or evidence) of a White Castle ever being in Torrance, THOUGH I understand
you can buy the little burgers frozen at the grocery. (There is a White Castle
Construction company in Torrance, though.) Far as FRESH, they are still pretty
much a regional, privately owned company, second only to McDonald's in
per-store profitability. Though they started in Wichita in 1921, their main office
shifted to Columbus, OH, and the majority of their locations nowadays are in
Ohio and Tennessee, a smattering in NYC and a handful in major cities, not
much west of the Mississippi. I'll keep looking, but for now here's one from
New Jersey.

I was hoping you or someone from that area would confirm is actually is Dawsonville. As we've been discussing lately, sometimes the captions on these old pics aren't very accurate. Thanks for the response.

Ditto, Ron! I loved the pic when you posted it. Just nails that time, and another one of thoe CLASSIC pix that tells a story no matter where you look in the frame. Auto, yes, but horses were still old reliable for many people who couldn't afford -- or didn't have faith in -- cars and trucks. My grandad never owned one car in his nearly 90 years. Chickens loose in the street, no thing. People did that, and they'd call them into their coop at sunset. Notice that the house also seems to be a general store? My great-grandmother and her second husband (first was killed in the mines)ran a store out of their home in West Virginia.

Cobra Daytona, designed by Peter Brock in 1964 ... an interesting guy, previously a major hand in the design of the split-window corvette (63) .... not much breathing room between the Chevrolet and AC/Cobra years.

He later went on to providing racing innovation for the 510 Datsuns ;through Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) early seventies. BRE with Peter Brock at the helms, still going strong.

First, let me apologize for mispelling "Cincinnatian". (That name confuses me everytime I write it-I thought I gave it a trial run that time.) By extra service I meant it was a "deluxe" type of service. The train ran daily with a schedule of approximately 12 hours between Cinncy and Washington.The name was of the train itself but the locomotive (4 President class 4-6-2s built in 1927) was shrouded in the streamlined casing specifically for this assignment. The concept was aimed at attracting travellers back to the rails (they had already begun the postwar drift away to the airways.). Alas, it was too little too late. It failed to develope the hoped for trade and was later reassigned to Detroit-Cincy. Inaugarated in January, 1947; reassigned in June, 1950; switched to diesel power in 1955; began to reduce service to the point where all character was lost and finally died in 1971-consisting at that point of a diesel unit and one coach.



Originally posted by Dale Fairfax:

Info on the photo is only partially correct. It IS the B&O-It's the Cincinnatian near Amblersburg, WV in 1948. The train was an extra service "streamliner" which ran between Washington and Cincinnati. The Chicago Northwestern was a completely different railroad operating in (as the name implies) the area North and west of Chicago.




Ron, you have the right spirit, man.:cool: I think we've all encountered that type of info. I just wish that if people don't KNOW, they'd state plainly that they're guessing. As is, there's the probable danger that most readers will accept WAGS as facts and, worse, continue to perpetuate false info. What's COOL about this thread is guys/gals can ASK for knowledgeable input, usually with getting flamed (least not usually on this thread.:p LOL). Seems that VERY rarely has such an approach failed to piece together most all the facts about any given photo! Awesome. (E.g., I recently posted a puzzling photo of a cave-like cliff; within two or three posts, guys who knew bits of info had it tracked down to a spot right on the Arizona/New Mexico line!)

Anyway, I appreciated Dale filling us in on the train pic,:) as Chicago is a long way from West Virginia. That terrain surely looks a lot more like WV than northwestern Illinois, too. Dale, can you help me with a couple of details, though? Was "Cincinnatian" the name of the streamliner engine? :confused: And when you say "extra service," I took that to mean that it ran as needed, rather than on a regular schedule. :confused: Am I close? Ron posting the pic also dispelled a vague idea I'd had that most all streamliners were diesel-powered. The Cincinnatian appears to be belching a cloud of coal smoke here. Sorry for so many ADDED questions! :o -- Jimi

You are correct that Cheboygan is about 14 miles east of the Mighty Mac. But highway old 27 cross's 75 at exit 133 and runs north east through Cheboygan and is also called South main St. This house is located at 314 South Main (27). Look at it on the google map. Grandpa moved to Cheboygan from Mount Pleasent in the 60's and lived right on the Cheboygan river next door to the paper company. We used to set in his back yard and watch the powerboat races. The paper company bought his house and tore it down to make room for expansion ( the paper company is now closed). He moved south of town across from Aloha State Park. We use to go to get up early on Sundays and drive 275 miles there before the highway was there and back in the evening quite often.

"Watched that one take off" from Northrop in Hawthorne,Ca.in 1947, they wern't sure of total distance needed for take off, so at end of runway(Crenshaw blvd.) they removed the chain link fence just in case!
Both my parents worked at Northrop during WWII.
Me too, shortly after it took off, my father was driving near the field at Hawthorne, when he suddenely stopped the car, pushed us out, pointed up and just said "FLYING WING!!" never forgot it. (later the Air Force cut the survivors up, to punish Northrop for not merging with Consolidated, though the Air Force secretary denied the story). Great airplane, but bombing accuracy was a problem

442nd Color Guard

Of all the Nisei Japanese-American outfits to see action during WWII, the 442d Regimental Combat Team (motto, "Go for Broke") served longest, saw the most action (France, Italy, Germany, etc.) took the most casualties AND racked up the most medals -- not the least of which included 21 Medals of Honor and nearly 1,000 Purple hearts. All these photos were taken, and captioned, by U.S. Army Signal Corps photographers. Here, too, are some relevant quotes on their service:

They were superb! That word correctly describes it: superb!
They took terrific casualties. They showed rare courage and tremendous fighting spirit. Not too much can be said of the performance of those battalions in Europe and everybody wanted them...."
-- General George C. Marshall


"...I had the honor to command the men of the 442nd Combat Team. You fought magnificently in the field of battle and wrote brilliant chapters in the military history of our country. They demonstrated conclusively the loyalty and valor of our American citizens of Japanese ancestry in combat."
-- General Mark W. Clark


"The members of the Combat Team have made a magnificent record of which they and all Americans should be proud. This record, without a doubt, is the most important single factor in creating in this country a more understanding attitude toward the people of Japanese descent."
-- Harold L. Ickes, Secretary of the Interior

Tom Mix was filming "The Deadwood Coach" at Zion National Park in 1924. He, according to one of the boys, said, "I want to get my picture taken with the boy who never saw a train"

On the afternoon of October 12, 1940, Mix was driving his 1937 Cord 812 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cord_Automobile#Revival) Phaeton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phaeton_body) near Florence, Arizona (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florence,_Arizona), (between Tucson (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tucson,_Arizona) and Phoenix (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix,_Arizona)) on Arizona State Route 79 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arizona_State_Route_79). Mix had been visiting Pima County Sheriff Ed Nichols in Tucson,<SUP id=cite_ref-2 class=reference>[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Mix#cite_note-2)</SUP> and had stopped at The Oracle Junction Inn, a popular gambling and drinking establishment, where he had called and spoken with his agent, when he came upon construction barriers at a bridge previously washed away by a flash flood. A work crew watched as he was unable to brake in time, and his car swerved twice then rolled into a gully, pinning his body beneath.<SUP id=cite_ref-3 class=reference>[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Mix#cite_note-3)</SUP> A large polished aluminum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aluminum) suitcase containing a large sum of money, traveler's checks and jewels, which he had placed on the package shelf behind him flew forward and struck Mix in the back of the head, shattering his skull and breaking his neck. The 60-year-old actor was killed almost instantly. Eyewitnesses said Mix was traveling at 80 mph before the accident.<SUP id=cite_ref-4 class=reference>[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Mix#cite_note-4)</SUP>

The D.o.D. ID card from Feb. 4, 1954, in Post #40,933 got me wondering, as I hadn't heard
of Marilyn Monroe doing any stints for the USO. So, as so often happens on this thread,
curiosity got the best of me, and I had to go look up the dope on it.:D It all makes perfect
sense, too. Joe DiMaggio and MM were maried in January '54, and in February they com-
bined an extended honeymoon with a business trip of Joe's in Japan. While there, Marilyn
decided to pop over to Korea to perform for the troops who were maintaining what was
then a very tenuous peace following the armistice at Panmunjom in mid-'53. These are
just a tiny FRACTION of the pix that were taken from Feb. 14 - 19 of '54. (BTW, South
Korea never did sign a peace accord, so a state of war still technically exists.:eek:)

Stars serve mess for the troops in this USO photo. Marilyn Monroe can be spotted
in the background beside a brunette whom I can't place. Foreground, Mickey Rooney

Rank DOES have its privileges, eh? One has to wonder if the medal
is for in-theater service OR maybe a Purple Heart??? If you look at
Marilyn's right thumb, you'll see where she gashed herself pretty
badly while cutting cake for the GIs. Pic thanks to AVeryLushBudget.

I read somewhere that after she came back, she told DiMaggio that they cheered her so much, "You've never heard the like." He said, "Yes I have."

Ford did the same design with HD trucks in the eighties using an F series cab on a lrge frame truck F700 and F7000 but my favorite line was the L series Louisville cab style which was built starting in 72. I drove many different configuerations throughout the 70s into the 90s but the best was the areomax 9000. This truck had the same cab style and room along with the same large windshield that I loved about my 72. Damn, I miss that areomax. Today the call em Sterlings. Not even close.... woops, this post is in ref to the pic on post #4197 1I also forgot to mention that big Detroit and the Eaton 13 one sweet truck... sniff

According to the State Library and Archives of Florida, “The Tin Can Tourists of the World (T.C.T.) was an organization of camping and trailering enthusiasts founded at a Tampa, Florida, campground in 1919.” Morris Monts de Oca, Charlie Anderson, Bill Buford, Freddie Crews, Wyatt Blassingame, Von Walker and Wilton Sauls. After six days and nights on the beautiful Suwannee River, these men are headed home. They traveled the river from Okefenokee Swamp to the Gulf of Mexico.

Pasadena CA Noll Packard Car Dealership Building is still there i used to go by it in the late 70,s at that time it sold some real cool hot rods and kustom cars now it is a empty Building all the old signs gone but the building still looks cool

Around the time you stated, it was called California Custom Coach.
It was there at that location till about 1985, then moved to another former Pontiac dealership that was on Lake/Corson on the S.E. corner.
In the millenium it did attempt to sell muscle cars,but not for long.

CCC sold exotics and Neo=Classic Replica Auburn Boatailed Speedsters and even their own version of the Mc Burnie Daytona Spyder. Cecil owned it and when someone made an offer on the Lake Ave property for a Hi-Rise
they relocated to 1st ave in Irwindale next to the old dragstrip.

That building was used on Charlie's Angels and a Remington Steel.
The other Pasadena Dealership building =Olds, was an Olds dealer till the mid 90's as Crown Olds then Heritage Olds, back to Crown then turned into a Ardvarks Thift-Resale store, which I think it still is.

Hemmings Classic Car reader Peter Betz saw the writeup on the Stewart-based motorhome in a recent HCC Lost and Found and shared with us the following story of a family from Johnstown, New York, their one-and-a-half-ton Dodge truck and the trip of a lifetime. Peter wrote:

During the fall of 1924, George Chamberlain and his brother Tamerlyn or ‘Tam’ purchased a new Dodge one and one-half ton truck and during the winter built a “portable home” on the chassis. They were both carpenters and from the photographs, we can see the resulting motor-home must have been large enough to contain Tam, Goldie, George plus their seven sons. Close to the end of building season, September 7th 1925, the entire clan climbed into this self-made mobile home and headed west for their long, memorable trip to California. They did not have a lot of money, but George and Tam somehow found room on board for their carpenter’s tools, and whenever funds ran low, they managed to find carpentry jobs along the way to replenish their credit.

The Johnstown Morning Herald of April 19, 1926, informs us that, “Starting about 8 each morning, the party traveled eight hours a day and always put up for the night when darkness came. They averaged 175 miles per day, some days going as far as 280 miles. Making numerous side trips to visit places of interest, they arrived in California just one month after leaving Johnstown.” Probably they traveled south, joining the Lincoln Highway, our first cross-country paved road, in Pennsylvania.

The Chamberlain family toured California for two months, and in early January 1926, turned the dependable Dodge back eastward. They toured Arizona and went as far south as Corpus Christi, sensibly sticking to the warmer states until spring, while passing through Louisiana and Mississippi. They remained in Montgomery, Alabama, for two and one-half months while Tam and George erected two houses and several barns on a large plantation whose owner appreciatively provided lodging and let the children attend a plantation school. When spring arrived in the north, “They again started for home, coming north by way of Washington. They made the last 1,162 miles in four days and five hours.” George and Tam probably wished to return home in time to obtain summer construction work.

In discussing the conditions of American highways during the mid Twenties, George related, “The roads on the trip westward were not so good; those over the southern route were excellent, but that stretch between Amsterdam and Johnstown over the Fort Johnson road (now Route 67) was the worst piece on the entire trip.” So the worst road was right at home.

George Chamberlain and his family were not the only ones to ‘hit the road’ during the 1920s, largely because this was the first decade of really reliable cars and trucks, and the dependability of tires had also greatly improved. It was the decade when major oil companies developed national service station chains, stretching them across the country and thereby lessening traveler’s anxiety about breakdowns.

We are indebted to Mrs. Gladys M. Chamberlain for the photographs of the Chamberlain motor home. Photographs of other early home-built mobile homes exist, sometimes accompanied by stories of the families and their adventures. As to the Chamberlain’s Dodge, one wonders how so many people – 10 in all, including the youngest at one year and eleven months – toughed it out so successfully. No doubt not all slept inside the vehicle except when necessary. Chamberlain related that they “attracted some little attention with their home on wheels. They lived in this home while traveling between towns, but whenever the opportunity presented itself, they stopped at various camp sites scattered along the routes.”

When Tam and George built their mobile home, they must have researched other contemporary designs in magazines like Popular Mechanics. They were not the first men to build one: pictures of such home-built RV’s appeared in The Motor Magazine as early as 1909. Ford made the one-ton Model TT truck chassis available for such use from 1917 through 1927 and the Nash Quad (four-wheel) flat bed was also favored for early motor home conversions. According to the Morning Herald, “Their portable camp carried all the necessities of a trip of this kind and it was a most delightful experience from every standpoint, costing less than $700.00, and no sickness or accident occurred to mar the trip.”

Amazing photo! "Life-Guards The Emperor of Austria's Kexholm Regiment.

Warsaw. 1903." Just as amazing, I understand it's only a crop from a much larger

com/2008/11/awesome-military-funny-pics.html.

The mention of Warsaw kind of threw me at first. But I do seem to recall that
Autro-Hungary was a very different animal in those days, boundary-wise. Any help?

Though I'm no Yankee fan, Joltin' Joe was to righty hitters what
Ted Williams was to lefties.:cool: Both had excellent eyesight and
coordination. But both also had the science of hitting down pat.
Look at the stride, the timing, and the all-important wrist action
to put the barrel of the bat on the ball to make it "jump.";) Unlike
the moody Williams, though, Joe was the darling of his home

Wiki sez:

"An intense police investigation led nowhere until thirteen years after their deaths, when former business partner Michael Frank Goodwin (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Michael_Frank_Goodwin&action=edit&redlink=1) was charged in Orange County, California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orange_County,_California) with the murders.<sup id="cite_ref-autogenerated1_23-1" class="reference">[24] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mickey_Thompson#cite_note-autogenerated1-23)</sup> However, that case was overturned on jurisdictional grounds by the California District Court of Appeal. On June 8, 2004, Goodwin was formally charged in Pasadena (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pasadena,_California) in Los Angeles County (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_Angeles_County). In October 2006, a Pasadena Superior Court judge ordered Goodwin to stand trial for the murders. On January 4, 2007 a jury found Michael Goodwin guilty of two counts of murder in the death of Mickey Thompson and his wife. Goodwin was sentenced to two consecutive life-without-parole terms for the murders of Thompson and his wife. The judge also denied Goodwin's motion for a new trial."

I wonder how much of the 1890s cabins are still part of the houses there? Someone remodeling a room night find that at one time that room was an entire home it happens often where older houses still exist. It's common to find out the large kitchen room of old houses was the original dwelling that got expanded on many times and eventually got swallowed up by the current building.

Hey there, Deuce. Thanks for your service to your country, man. Me, I was only born in 1950, so I grew up listening to WWI, WWII and Korea stuff from my MANY relatives who also fought for their country. They hated the enemies they'd fought, and dehumanizing your enemy makes him easier to attack with extreme prejudice. My next-door neighbor growing up also was a vet, a Tennesseean shot through the hip at the "Frozen Chosin" Reservoir.

I'm glad you put the G-word in quotes, as it shows that fighting men understood it was a demeaning term. I'd thought it only was used during the 'Nam era, but it utrns out that it was used by marines as early as the Spanish-American War, referring to Filipino enemies (there had been an atrocity against trapped marines, so I guess I can understand the angst, even though Perishing severely punished those whom he thought responsible). Enough on the history front. Still, it's a slur and doesn't need to be on the HAMB, even quoted in an historical context. S'let's move on to the positive stuff.

It never ceases to amaze me that when you go searching for one thing on the 'net, you often
stumble across something way better than you were seeking! Following is a a sort of photo-
graphic time machine, providing a fascinating look at Korea, immediately after the Japanese
surrender and the invasion of Korean communists into the south which, soon, would lead the
country back into war. THIS shows the relatively peaceful interlude between the two conflicts.
ALL photos were shot by Don O'Brien of the signal corps, except for, I think, the very first one,
shot by comrade Rolland Oxton. All I can say is that Don O'Brien was and is a real master of
the craft and art of photography! If, hopefully this FlickR link works, you can see MANY more
of Don's shots from this unique window in time: www.flickr.com/photos/dok1/95931222/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/dok1/95931222/).

Sunday drive in Korea, gone bad! November 1945, photographer Rolland Oxton of the Boston
Herald said simply: "On a Sunday afternoon in Korea during November 1945, three of us--all
photographers-- drove down this road. We reached a point where even our trusty Jeep couldn't
go any farther." Photo posted to the 'net by FlickR member Dok1, Don O'Brien.

Don in Korea with his DKO Speed Graphic of which he commented,
"The 4x5 Speed Graphic was the workhorse for still pictures taken by
the Signal Corps in World War II. This is one that my outfit, 198th
Signal Photo Company, took first to Europe and then to Korea."

You can just see Don's shadow lower-left in this November 1945 photo he calls simply, "Korean Friends."
As he tells it: "When we stopped for lunch en route from Seoul to the east coast, in November 1945, these
six friendly Koreans appeared. They didn't care much for our Army rations. [LOL!] I used the Speed
Graphic to photograph them with my partner, Ulysses Quentin Davis." A Korean FlickR user commented
that the older fella is showing respect to Quentin by receiving a gift with both hands.

Shooting 35-mm movie footage of the Han River Railroad Bridges in October 1945. Don relates:
"I was using this 35mm Eyemo with 400-foot magazines to film parts of a report on the Korean
railroad. The US Army railroad experts were training Koreans to operate the system that Japanese
had controlled since 1910." [Note: Since right after the Russo-Japanese War]. "The site pictured is
west of Seoul above the rail bridges crossing the Han River. These were later bombed by North
Korea." Of this photo, FlickR member McKimchee enthused, "My dad was a toddler when my
grandfather, a wealthy importer, gathered up the family and fled south from the communists under
the cover of night. My dad feintly [sic] recalls crossing a bridge of some importance in freezing
temperatures. Perhaps this is the one! "

I'll bet even Ansel Adams would have nodded approvingly at Don's style, B&W accentuating
tone, texture, composition -- what I love about B&W photography on REAL film! The is the

jimi .... wow we were borne the same year! My father-in-law was drafted and sent to Korea in 1950 (the year WE were borne) and twenty years later I too was drafted and sent to very same division pops was in. I spent 15 months there mostly on the Im-jim-gang river with our artillery pieces pointed five miles to North Korea ... interesting days

Another guy I know was a BAR man on Okinawa and did the same damn job in Korea. Go figure. But, hell, they were were both super-patriots, so they laughed about it more than anything. What a world.

I realized that I didn't say what a BAR (B.A.R.) was for the benefit of visitors to the thread.
Browning fully automatic rifle, though most guys used them semi-auto where they had that
distinctive barking noise that induced a lot of enemies to surrender rather than fight.:o 16-
shot magazine could fire all in less than four seconds on full auto.

Any wonder the Louisiana laws weren't gonna let Clyde Barrow defend himself? He's

Clydes weapon of choice was the B.A.R. Bonnies was 20 gauge sawed off pump shotguns Clyde alsao sent Henry Ford a letter that he would only steal Ford V8s for get away cars because they had the power he needed to outrun the law. It's ironic that they both died at the hands of a marshal using a B.A.R. converted to a belt feed I think it was.

The C-130 is a S.T.O.L. aircraft, Short Take Off and Landing, man can they get off the ground in a short space so it is not a surprise that they could get off the deck of a carrier!
Airborne!! I think I have enough hours sitting in the back of one of them to fly around the world at least 5 or 6 times!
It's funny but with the boring hours in them and DHC Caribous you develop an odd affection for them, I miss the Caribou now that they are out of service. We got to jump out of them for the 'Retirement' ceremony.

Amazing. I thought I rememberd a JATO assisted photo of a C-130 launch of a carrier, but the article doesn't mention it. I have witnessed EA-3Bs operating on the USS Coral Sea, and they barely fit (they didn't call them whales for nothing!) but they were part of the airwing. To do the C-130 deal, the deck was cleared of all other aircraft, not too practical as only so many jets will fit in a CVs hangar bay and operating with a C-130 or U-2 would certainly limit your capabilities. I've also seen deck launched (no catapult assist) C-1s and was on the USS Ranger off San Diego the day we celebrated the 50th anniversary Doolittle Raid and the Ranger deck launched two B-25s! Again, the deck was clear of all other aircraft. That was very cool and it was followed by a good number of warbird fly-bys.

Cobra Daytona, designed by Peter Brock in 1964 ... an interesting guy, previously a major hand in the design of the split-window corvette (63) .... not much breathing room between the Chevrolet and AC/Cobra years.

He later went on to providing racing innovation for the 510 Datsuns ;through Brock Racing Enterprises (BRE) early seventies. BRE with Peter Brock at the helms, still going strong.

It is strange that one of our greatest domestic race drivers was killed in a replica Cobra Daytona, his name? Peter Brock!!

Not just any battleship,, The USS New Jersey :
USS New Jersey (BB-62), ("Big J" or "Black Dragon") is an Iowa-class battleship, and was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named in honor of the U.S. state of New Jersey. New Jersey earned more battle stars for combat actions than the other three completed Iowa-class battleships, and is the only U.S. battleship to provide gunfire support during the Vietnam War.
During World War II, New Jersey shelled targets on Guam and Okinawa, and screened aircraft carriers conducting raids in the Marshall islands. During the Korean War, she was involved in raids up and down the North Korean coast, after which she was decommissioned into the United States Navy reserve fleets, better known as the "mothball fleet". She was briefly reactivated in 1968 and sent to Vietnam to support U.S. troops before returning to the mothball fleet in 1969. Reactivated once more in the 1980s as part of the 600-ship Navy program, New Jersey was modernized to carry missiles and recommissioned for service. In 1983, she participated in U.S. operations during the Lebanese Civil War.
New Jersey was decommissioned for the last time in 1991, having earned a Navy Unit Commendation for service in Vietnam and 19 battle and campaign stars for combat operations during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Lebanese Civil War, and service in the Persian Gulf. After a brief retention in the mothball fleet, she was donated to the Home Port Alliance in Camden, New Jersey, and began her career as a museum ship 15 October 2001.

Now that would have been so very cool to see!! Doc.

Indeed. And a big deal for the Navy and San Diego. The week prior to this launch, there were warbirds on the pier in front of the ship, open houses, static displays, ceremonies, etc. and a lot of civilians / vets were aboard for the big day. The B-25's were hoisted to the flight deck and the whole deal took place very near land at Pt. Loma. Being launched light, the bombers were airborne a lot faster than I expected and considering the Hornet was so much smaller than the Ranger, these restored planes almost made it look too easy. I have pix burried some place in my files taken from the flight deck and vultures row. I just gave my commerative patch of that day to one of my Uncle's old friends, who has been been a member of the Doolittle Raid group since it's inception. He goes to all the events, and is still crazy about the guys who did it. But not many of them are left and there may not be many more yearly events. Gary

Though this is a fine piece of artwork by one Henrietta Snowden,
it seems to sum up in a single image the soldier's hard life during
the COLD winter of 1950. Brrrr! Titled simply, "Withdrawal from
Kot'o-ri, 1950." But, hey. Just a "police action," right? :rolleyes: Funny,
the PR spin Washington put on a conflict that cost 50,000 lives.
But, that was the beginning of the Cold War, and nobody wanted
a wider war so soon after WWII! Not to worry, vets! Not all of us
turned a blind eye to "The Forgotten War." ;) Image thanks to www. (http://www.history.ar-/)

Any younger person wishing to better understand the whys and
wherefores of the Korean War will have an illuminating read at
that web address. :cool: It all makes sense, in a geo-political way. But
both civilians and ordinary enlisted folk had a hard time getting
their arms around it at the time. Strategically, it had more to do
with what the U.S.S.R. might do in post-war Europe!

After World War II, Marshall Plan aid to a devastated West Germany
enabled that country to surpass its prewar industrial production.
I say, God bless George Marshall. :) But a lot of people either forget
how generous the U.S. has always been in victory, or they don't
care because some find it fashionable to bash their own country.

He's actually a PFC (E-2), PFC's didn't become E-3's and add a rocker until they revised the whole rank and pay-scale in 1958 (or '59 if I recall correctly). Buck privates had no Chevron at all.

They started painting rank on helmet-liners mid-way through WW-II although it wasn't really common until the '50s. It was 'required' for officers starting in 1942, I have both the 1941 and 1942 publications of "The Officer's Guide" the later book has the reg and guidance for helmet-rank, the earlier one doesn't. While most are hand painted, there were decals available for purchase at the PX.

Sorry for that, I'll end my novel there...

Not just any battleship,, The USS New Jersey :
USS New Jersey (BB-62), ("Big J" or "Black Dragon") is an Iowa-class battleship, and was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named in honor of the U.S. state of New Jersey. New Jersey earned more battle stars for combat actions than the other three completed Iowa-class battleships, and is the only U.S. battleship to provide gunfire support during the Vietnam War.
During World War II, New Jersey shelled targets on Guam and Okinawa, and screened aircraft carriers conducting raids in the Marshall islands. During the Korean War, she was involved in raids up and down the North Korean coast, after which she was decommissioned into the United States Navy reserve fleets, better known as the "mothball fleet". She was briefly reactivated in 1968 and sent to Vietnam to support U.S. troops before returning to the mothball fleet in 1969. Reactivated once more in the 1980s as part of the 600-ship Navy program, New Jersey was modernized to carry missiles and recommissioned for service. In 1983, she participated in U.S. operations during the Lebanese Civil War.
New Jersey was decommissioned for the last time in 1991, having earned a Navy Unit Commendation for service in Vietnam and 19 battle and campaign stars for combat operations during World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Lebanese Civil War, and service in the Persian Gulf. After a brief retention in the mothball fleet, she was donated to the Home Port Alliance in Camden, New Jersey, and began her career as a museum ship 15 October 2001.

Indeed. And a big deal for the Navy and San Diego. The week prior to this launch, there were warbirds on the pier in front of the ship, open houses, static displays, ceremonies, etc. and a lot of civilians / vets were aboard for the big day. The B-26's were hoisted to the flight deck and the whole deal took place very near land at Pt. Loma. Being launched light, the bombers were airborne a lot faster than I expected and considering the Hornet was so much smaller than the Ranger, these restored planes almost made it look too easy. I have pix burried some place in my files taken from the flight deck and vultures row. I just gave my commerative patch of that day to one of my Uncle's old friends, who has been been a member of the Doolittle Raid group since it's inception. He goes to all the events, and is still crazy about the guys who did it. But not many of them are left and there may not be many more yearly events. Gary

Empire always comes up with neat stuff!!
TRUE STORY: At the Detroit NSRA NATS,in 1972 the local TV reporter was going from car to car interviewing drivers, he stopped at this nice '34 with a greyhound radiator ornament & asking the owner about that "DOG", the owner said to get up close & look under the "DOG"--TV guy did & was squirted with a small tube of water from a windshield washer pump!!
TV guy was pissed (no pun intended) & left the scene of laughing street rodders!!!
Couldn't resist telling this after EMPIRE'S pix of the Greyhound!!!----Don

Though this is a fine piece of artwork by one Henrietta Snowden,
it seems to sum up in a single image the soldier's hard life during
the COLD winter of 1950. Brrrr! Titled simply, "Withdrawal from
Kot'o-ri, 1950." But, hey. Just a "police action," right? :rolleyes: Funny,
the PR spin Washington put on a conflict that cost 50,000 lives.
But, that was the beginning of the Cold War, and nobody wanted
a wider war so soon after WWII! Not to worry, vets! Not all of us
turned a blind eye to "The Forgotten War." ;) Image thanks to www. (http://www.history.ar-/)

Any younger person wishing to better understand the whys and
wherefores of the Korean War will have an illuminating read at
that web address. :cool: It all makes sense, in a geo-political way. But
both civilians and ordinary enlisted folk had a hard time getting
their arms around it at the time. Strategically, it had more to do
with what the U.S.S.R. might do in post-war Europe!

Yep!----Jimi, a little known FACT, a lot of G.I.soldiers that couldn't cope with all that bitter cold, would shoot their foot to get back to a warmer hospital facility.

I trained on 105s and assigned to 8' inchers with a 22 mile range but personally I think hitting a shit house from 23 miles is pretty optomistic .... to many variables, including human error. Maybe by a five round walk-in with an FO I'd say yes.

CodeBlue, heard ya loud & clear. Guy I worked with was a ball to be around. But when he talked about the "Frozen Chosin," his hands would shake to where we'd have light his cigarette -- obvious post-traumatic stress (only now finally properly assessed).

Early in the battle, he and his buds were dug in up on a ridge. The Chinese regs started "walking in" mortars on their position. When one hit a little too close, he said, boys, they've got us nailed. Let's get the hell out of this foxhole! Next round was RIGHT ON. Guess we knoew what kept him awake at night, right?

Day or so later, he was on detail hacking guys out of the ice to transport them to proper burial. He said that, when they fell, their body temps were just enough to cause them to sink a little into the ice.

I could tell he didn't like talking about it. But I got the feeling he liked getting it off his shoulders.

jimi'shemi291
03-01-2012, 05:56 PM
BTW, about 2,500 UN troops ( US, Brit, French, probably ANZAC, too) who went to the border got whammed by the unexpected influx of Chinese regs, bent on irradicating them. They got encircled, leading the commander to say, well at least we know where the enemy is.

Turkish troops lost over half their number trying to break through. When the allied UN forces broke out, less than 400 out of the 2,500 came back without getting killed or wounded. But if they hadn't slugged it out (barrels red), they would have been overrun like Custer and his band.

I'd call them heroes.

RE all of the vet related chatter here recently has me thinking back about many veterans I've worked with. I've been involved with the military community in one way or another for nearly my entire adult life - I guess even before that if my uncle and some of my dad's friends who I knew as a kid that were in WWII count. I got my induction physical in '67 but didn't go in till '71 and was VERY fortunate not to have to go to the bad places that many of my friends and relatives had to go to - and several who didn't return.

I especially remember one old Chief (E-9) I worked with as a young airman. He was definitely 'old school', a WWII vet who was ending his Air Force career in the early 70s. He was crusty and crotchety, but with a heart of gold and oh the stories! Nobody dared asked him about his experiences, he'd snap one's head off, just like others some of us might know. But without notice sometimes he'd just open up and let the stories go. We'd just sit and listen...I wish I'd had a recorder! Jimi as you also said, many of the vets who were in bad places are reluctant or refuse to talk about some stuff, but it stays with them to their graves.

But to anyone who knows veterans enough to be around them when they start talking - shut up! sit down! Listen! Be a sponge and absorb all they say. They're not going to be here forever. While sometimes the media only focuses on a few of them, the real "Band of Brothers" extends to nearly each and every family who has or has had a member who has served our beautiful America

As we've all agreed on this thread, PICTURES tell stories. But living,
breathing people still have memories living within them which will
pass away when they die. THANKS, Ron, and all. I honestly didn't
mean to side-track anything talking about Korea. But they need to
be remembered just like any loyal servieman or servicewoman. I'd
encourage anyone to look up the Korean War. Even just the photos
convey so much (except the ones censored for their graphic
impact). These are nice ones, and I'll leave it at that. NO, it is not
a "Forgotten War," not at all.

These days we will never know the psychological strain placed on Veterans of Korea and Vietnam (Thank God!). Maybe the general public are still to a large extent apathetic toward it all, even my family have given me the 'Oh god, here he goes' and roll of the eyes on the few occasions I have cared to tell them anything.
I don't understand their reasoning, somehow they have come to the conclusion that all conflicts post Vietnam are somewhat less of an ordeal, less real. That the fighting was on a much lower and less dangerous level! Maybe we were not there for as long but being pinned down behind a rocky outcrop with a lot of opposing fire coming down on you would be no different in 1942 or 2002 you can die just as much.
Ask a Victoria Cross Recipient from either age of conflicts and I bet you get almost the same story. I does not matter when it happens, combat is combat and holds the same possibility's no matter where or when it was.
Though these days there are some great avenues for Veterans to access assistance in these areas. As much as it's kinda hard to admit it, I have recently started to see a Psych care of Vets Affairs.
I wonder how it will all go?:o

The C-130 is a S.T.O.L. aircraft, Short Take Off and Landing, man can they get off the ground in a short space so it is not a surprise that they could get off the deck of a carrier!
Airborne!! I think I have enough hours sitting in the back of one of them to fly around the world at least 5 or 6 times!
It's funny but with the boring hours in them and DHC Caribous you develop an odd affection for them, I miss the Caribou now that they are out of service. We got to jump out of them for the 'Retirement' ceremony.

Doc.

Nice post Doc. This was the USS Forrestal carrier CVA-59 around 63-64. My dad was fire and rescue on the Forrestal and stood ring side while this C-130 made its landing and take off that day. He said it was an awesome sight seeing such a huge plane on the flight deck.

My Dad served on the New Jersey 1951-52. He served at least the first half of that time in one of the 16" gun turrets. He is still with us at 89, and to this day, when asked about that time will only say "I served hoping you wouldn't have to". My Mom gave me some great action shots he took of that time and clippings from Parade Magazine, but he just doesn't like to (won't) talk about it.

This 'stove' was a fixture at the Michigan State Fairgrounds for many years. I think it was originally closer to downtown Detroit before being moved out to the fairgrounds, not sure what year this pic was taken:

It used to sit at the entrance to the Ambassador Bridge to Canada when I was a small child and they moved it to the Michigan State Fairgrounds on Woodward Avenue.

1967 Detroit - Michigan Governor George Romney discussing with plant workers during race riots. I met him in '62; he came into town in a Rambler Ambassador (he was former head of AMC)

These were in the collection of slides that I pulled from my Dad's basement after he passed away in 2010. He was from northern California. I assume these are late 50's or early 60's. Thought you guys might like 'em.

My father in-law (left) with his mom and brother, early '42. Both boys joined the Army in December '41 and served in Alaska and later the Solomon Islands 'for the duration'

racerron, your father in law, considering he was in Alaska at the beginning of the war, probably served in the Seventh Division ... they have quite a respectable history ... chased the Japanese off the Aluetian Islands and then went on to the south pacific. The Bayonet Division.
